Playing the superhero Thor in the Marvel Studios Thor franchise.
Vegetables and Rice
Thor star Chris Hemsworth shared one of his intense workouts on his Instagram. In the video, Hemsworth is punching and kicking away—he also wrote a caption that reads, “Smashing the pads with @zocobodypro, nothing better than physical exertion to clear the mind.
No doubt that Hemsworth has muscles—how else can you lug around a heavy hammer as your primary weapon?
Hemsworth has played many roles, not just Thor, so his physique often changes. He’s bulked up and slimmed down, but there are some key points you can take away from his fitness routine to help with your own.
For starters, Hemsworth practices chaos training, which means that he completes a variety of different workout programs as a means to shock his muscles, which helps with bulking up.
Second, it was important that Hemsworth dropped fat and built muscle. To do so, he completed cross-fit-inspired workouts along with high intensity interval training (HIIT).
Another big aspect of Hemsworth’s look is his diet; when he has to bulk up, he needs to consume a lot more calories than normal. He sticks to chicken, vegetables, and rice, which the actor notes can get boring real quick.
